Known as the premier rock themed bar in London always busy and lively. Everyone's friendly staff and punters alike. Enough selection of drink to keep you there until 3am.

What a great place. The jukebox is loaded with metal, mostly older but some current selections. The beer was cheap, a 20 ounce Newcastle for 4.60 and they had lots of bourbons and whiskeys to choose from. The patrons of the bar ranged from old...More

hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a
compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars,
and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red
Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene –
and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping
enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's
greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
